…I posted this.

Earlier today, my sister sent me a link to this new Volkswagen commercial.

It’s nice to see Eduard Khil get a postmortem nod.

I also found this video on YouTube. As it turns out, Khil’s version was a cover of this original from the 1960s as sung by Russian singer Muslim Magomayev.

Good, but not nearly as amazing as the version I’ve grown to love.

We played that song at our wedding,

…which is Milwaukee’s annual music festival, when I was in town last week.

Volkswagen had a tent set up there, and in the tent was a bicycle-powered photo booth. The idea was simple: get on the bike and pedal for a minute or so to generate enough power to run the photo booth, then get inside and snap a shot that Volkswagen would then email to you.

I pedaled. My mom and I got inside the booth and got our photo taken. And when I got home, this photo was in my inbox.

That’s not me or my mom,

I want to hear the whole song,

Old Poop!
